The UNEP-ASHRAE-sponsored conference aims to glean results achieved, successes and lessons learnt.

With the tantalising header – ‘Road to climate-friendly chillers: moving beyond CFCs and HCFCs’, the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP) and ASHRAE-sponsored conference, to be held from September 30 to October 1, this year in Cairo, Egypt, will certainly attract a lot of attention of experts and industry manufacturers alike.

The main objective of the conference, say the organisers, is to enhance the practical knowledge on state-of-the-art alternative refrigerants and to communicate achieved results, successes and lessons learnt.

Authors are invited to submit an abstract on any of the following topics:

  • Heat-driven water chiller technology
  • Vapour-compression chiller technology
  • Absorption chillers technology practical experience: operation, maintenance, energy performance
  • Solar-assisted cooling systems
  • Industrial chiller technology
  • District cooling facility dimensioning and building integration
  • Alternative refrigerants
  • Retrofitting of refrigeration systems
  • Future refrigerants
  • Funding and implementation of chiller replacement programmes
  • The organisers have specified that the abstract should be in Word or PDF format and should not exceed more than a page.

Those interested in sending in their abstracts need to make sure that the abstract contains the following elements:

  • The title of the paper
  • Five keywords
  • Authors’/author’s names/name and affiliation
  • Name of the corresponding author together with email and full postal address, telephone and fax numbers
  • The paper needs to be written in English, which is the official conference language

The deadline for submission of abstracts is April 15, 2010.

Authors will be notified of the acceptance of their abstracts by April 25, 2010. It needs to be remembered that fullly technical, non-commercial papers are to be submitted, based on the guidelines for preparing the manuscripts, only after the acceptance of abstracts. Papers are due on June 25, 2010.

According to ASHRAE, those interested in presenting a paper need to familiarise themselves with ASHRAE’s commercialism policy that can be viewed on ASHRAE’s website.

Abstracts should be submitted, by the deadline, to Prof Walid Chakroun, DRC, Region-At-Large, ASHRAE, and should be emailed to: chillerconference@gmail.com.
